We worked with Scots Singer of the Year Iona Fyfe, and the last 2 BBC Young Trad Musicians of the Year (Michael Biggins on piano & Ali Levack on whistles) to reimagine Letter From America for 2020's Scotland.
We turned it into a love letter to Europe. And we reflect on the 3 most common things we hear in Scotland today:
"We just want to be normal".
On how, since Brexit, musicians can't tour, students are torn out of Erasmus, world class exporters can't export.
And being a patient neighbour, from Islay to Iceland to Islington & beyond.
So, we wrote a love letter about it
